Terry, Blair & Anouchka was a musical outfit, active in the early 1990s. The group was formed by
Coventryborn singer Terry Hall, American actress Blair Boothand jeweler Anouchka Groce.
Terry Hall was previously a founding member and lead singer of the legendary
skagroup The Specials, the forefathers of the 2 Toneera. This was before leaving with two other members to form the short-lived pop trio Fun Boy Three. Then Terry formed The Colourfieldin 1984.
Terry, Blair & Anouchka were formed shortly after the dissolution of Terry's previous musical project
The Colourfield. All three members shared a love for '60s pop, as well as kitschy mainstream pop, as evidenced on the trio's cover of Captain & Tennille's " Love Will Keep Us Together." Their debut single "Missing," was released in the fall of 1989 and while it didn't make much of an impact (peaking at number 75 on the UK singles charts), it did have the distinct dishonour of making the " Guinness Book of Records" list of least successful singles by any act.
The trio's second single, "
Ultra Modern Nursery Rhyme," didn't even chart. Terry, Blair and Anouchka's debut album, called "Ultra Modern Nursery Rhymes", was released in February of 1990 to little attention. The group split shortly afterwards.
In 1992, Terry Hall collaborated with Dave Stewart of
Eurythmicsunder the name Vegas, before releasing a self-titled album in 1995.
